What is Bassnectar?


"Tempo shifting bass nastiness and glitchy synth
action in full effect on this release. Huge!"

For the last decade, Lorin Ashton has helped develop the North American underground dance music scene. From touring full time as a DJ (an average of 125 shows per year), to his production & remixing under the alias Bassnectar, he has ammassed a dedicated fan base, crossing over from hip hop to electronica to breakbeat to ragga/dub to the jam band scene and the greater Burningman scene.

In 2005,having remixed or collaborated with the likes of, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Buckethead, Michael Kang (The String Cheese Incident), FreQ Nasty, Saul Williams, Noam Chomsky, Cheb I Sabbah, Sound Tribe Sector 9, Crash Berlin, Landslide, Heavyweight Dub Champion & KRS One, and Perry Farrell, the Bassnectar sound has benefited from a wide lense of exposure, and evolved from cutting edge dance music to where it exists today: a mutant mash-up of multiple styles and genres.

Imagine the heaving basslines of Drum n Bass and Breakbeat (think Dieselboy, Freestylers, Tipper, Aphrodite), the massive beats of old school Hip Hop (think PublicEnemy, Beastie Boys, Run DMC), glitchy tones and sonic tricks of modern Electronica/IDM (think Prefuse 73, Plaid, Pest, Underworld, Aphex Twin) all mashed up with hip hop lyrics, cut-up dancehall/ragga vocals, samples of political speeches (from activists like Noam Chomsky, Mumia Abu Jamal, Michael Ruppert, Michael Franti, Martin Luther King, etc) and pumped through a variety of tempos. The new Bassnectar music is an exotic blend of both the listening experience and the dance experience.

As a DJ he has achieved enormous success. Rated Best Of The Bay 2005" by the SF Bay Guardian, and Number 1 in Nitevibe.coms recent DJ Dreamteam contest, he is constantly booked 3-4 months in advance, on a regular tour schedule, playing to thousands of different people a month. From sold out festivals to overcrowded clubs and warehouses to tight and tiny bars and venues; his following continues to grow due to his unique charisma and a cutting-edge futuristic spin on electronic music.

As a producer, his remixes and original tracks have been released on numerous CDs, compilations, and 12 inch releases, charted by the likes of Annie Nightengale (BBC Radio 1), James Zabiela, Ali B, Rennie Pilgrem, DJ Hyper, and Simply Jeff (BPM), with support from Adam Freeland, Karsh Kale, Freq Nasty, Uberzone, and Krafty Kuts. The tracks enjoyed international praise from such publications as BPM, XLR8R, Mixer, and Muziq, and have been licensed by MTV for multiple shows. With his latest release distributed by Universal, Bassnectars next full length CD entitled Metamorpho[p]sis is due out Septmeber 2006. His two self-released full length CDs have both gone into their third pressing, followed by the recent release of Tempo Rosso, a full length downtempo CD for Red Bull (13,000 copies were pressed and distributed). He has also appeared on releases from the following labels: OM, Virgin, 6 Degrees, Bless Records, Functional Breaks, Ceiba, Groundwork (Starbucks) and Kool Keiths Sync Recordings.


"J. Scott G. is one of the most talented and passionate producers that I have ever had the pleasure of meeting, and what he has put into Summer Channel only goes to show how gifted he really is."

What is left to do?

After being on top of the electronic music industry for more than a decade, what achievement outshines traveling the world performing in front of hundreds of thousands of people at venues like Red Rocks and 3-Com Stadium, remixing Madonna (twice - both #1 on Billboard), Paul Oakenfold (twice), Seal (#1 on the Billboard), Frank Sinatra (The first official estate commissioned electronic remix ever), David Bowie, America, Curve, The Crystal Method (#2 on Billboard), BT, Keoki, Carl Cox & Markus Schulz? What could be more rewarding than being featured on MTV, and producing tracks for Sandra Collins, D:Fuse, and DJ Rap? What can you do to top mountains of critical and popular acclaim in magazines like Rolling Stone and URB, barely being edged out for a Grammy nomination and a Dance Star award, licensing tracks for films like Tomb Raider and Bad Boys II, television powerhouses such as Buffy The Vampire Slayer and CSI, and spicing up video game soundtracks for Gran Turismo 4 and SSX 3?

You start all over again.

J. Scott G's new Summer Channel venture is a direct answer to the continued enervation of the dance music industry that he helped impel as one half of former seminal beat rockers Deepsky. As Rave culture enters its twilight and clubbers become jaded by mountains of listless deep-prog-idm-breakcore tunes, the party-going public has subconsciously clamored for something fresh and exciting with shrinking event attendance, drooping CD and record sales, and a palpable malaise about club nights once considered massive. Enter Summer Channel.

DJ Spree and MC ADB have become a staple for hardcore stateside. The dynamic duo have played shows all over the world and after. Spree is without doubt the most well known and respected Happycore DJ in Americas history. No one can imitate the originator. Not only can he scratch like a turntable fiend, but he also possesses the ability to turn a crowd into an instant frenzy with his record dropping intuition and understanding of what the hardcore army demands.

Adb is originally from the UK and was heavily influenced by Hardcore from its very inception. This mic fiend is a throw-back to the original style Hardcore MC, and is simply here to entertain the crowd and compliment the DJ.

Get ready to blow those whistles and scream once again for your favorite duo, because it?s going to be Spree&Adb time! (Crash helmets not included).

Deep down he will tell you he's never happier than when he's playing in his hometown. (Hey, it's family , he says.) With a sound in 2007 that spans boundaries and is truly something fresh, Cypher will continue to win over crowds wherever he goes, with his wicked blend of the best in progressive music and the most unbelievable track selection in the world.. Please welcome the dancefloor general Cypher!
